The Edgewater is a nice enough hotel and is in a great location. The staff is friendly, the place is clean, and the beds are comfortable. The creek view would be nice on a lower floor but up higher one has it's pros and cons. The pro is that one can enjoy the city lights and space needle; the con is the unsightly excavation going on directly across the street. This is by no means any fault of the establishment but it does make the view less than wonderful. The river flows directly in front of the hotel so a room on the lower levels would afford one the opportunity to enjoy it. The noise level is a bit on the high side as there is traffic on up into the night. There is a continental breakfast and the only good thing I can say about it is that it's free. Honestly, don't waste your time - the offerings included cottage cheese, frozen berries that have just thawed out, granola, cereal, stale white bread for toast, coffee and juice. The only thing that looked to be remotely appetizing was the biscuit with gravy. Several people walked in and then left after seeing what was being offered. The elevator service isn't great but there are benches where one can sit and wait on it. Overall this was an average experience. The price was reasonable and the location unbeatable.
